The masterpiece I present in this publication, Virgin and Child with Musician Angels, by the Master of Belmonte, is a real find in Aragonese Gothic painting from the second half of the fifteenth century. It is painted on panel and in an excellent state of preservation. It incredibly maintains its entire original polychromy, its gildings and silver leaves, so that time does not seem to have made any impact at all, but rather the opposite. It has kept its freshness and colorfulness as if the artist had painted it only recently.
